Suominen has launched Biolace Silva, a nonwoven with exceptional cleaning power and 50 per cent lower carbon footprint than 100 per cent viscose product. It is an environmentally conscious consumers’ choice, and for the consumer who values time and premium feel on the skin. Suominen manufactures nonwovens as roll goods for wipes and other applications.

Biolace Silva uses the natural power of pulp to provide exceptional cleaning performance and cloth-like look and feel, making it a well-balanced nonwoven supporting multiple end uses in the consumer and professional markets. Biolace Silva works to reduce cleaning time and provide greater convenience by utilising 150 per cent more fibre surface area compared to standard viscose for difficult cleaning tasks. In addition to its great cleaning abilities, Biolace Silva is a premium wetlaid nonwoven with great strength and thickness. Due to its excellent stability and low 2:1 MD:CD ratio, it is perfect for easy converting and one-at-a-time dispensing, Suominen said in a press release.

Markets for baby products are making a turn in consumer expectations and growing the market for more sustainable products for sensitive skin without compromising on high quality. By using plant based and plastic-free raw materials, Suominen has developed a product to match the values and expectations of consumers. Consumers are looking at the entire supply chain, so it is important for Suominen to create products that reduce CO2 already in the earlier stage of the supply chain.

Biolace Silva uses some of the best and most natural assets that our forests have to offer. Biolace Silva is a biodegradable and compostable nonwoven using natural fibres with a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to viscose fibres. Suominen not only claims Biolace Silva as good for the environment but its cellulosic fibre content has also been confirmed through independent certification and is 100 per cent biodegradable.
